Bowmouth Guitarfish – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Bowmouth Guitarfish:

The Bowmouth Guitarfish - also called the Shark Ray or Mud Skate - is the sole member of the family Rhinidae. One reason for this is that the evolutionary development of this fish have not been quite worked out. They are one of the larger rays, reaching lengths of nearly 9 feet (2.9 meters) and weighing about 300 pounds (135 kg.) It is a heavy built fish with a very unusual shape, with the resemblance to the common musical instrument giving it part of it's popular name. These fish prefer to stay near the bottom, ideally in muddy waters or in underwater structures. These fish are considered "vulnerable" due to the fact that they are highly prized for the exotic dish shark fin soup. It has become a symbol of the various ocean animals threatened by human activity it sometimes referred to the as the "Panda of the Aquatic World."
